Rory plays golf with Trump from the forward tees, swing is almost “full speed”

Published

on

Rory McIlroy is expected to return to competitive golf the first week of March at the WGC-Mexico Championship, and he appears to be healing well from rib stress fracture that forced his withdraw from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January.

On Sunday, McIlroy was back on the course playing with none other than U.S. President Donald Trump. While the image above also shows former New York Yankee outfielder Paul O’Neill and Clear Sports CEO Garry Singer, the foursome was actually rounded out by Nick Mullen and Rich Levine.

According to NoLayingUp, the most reliable source for Rory McIlroy news these days, McIlroy played from the forward tees but he did hit some drivers. He also said his swing was “nearly at full speed” based on TrackMan numbers.

For those wondering about Trump’s game, Rory told NoLayingUp that “[Trump] probably shot around 80. He’s a decent player for a guy in his 70’s!”

    It sounds like ALTERNATIVE FACTS were used to determine his 4 handicap… “He probably shot around 80” sounds like he shot way >80.

    I travel for work and have played some of President Trump’s courses and I’m totally impressed from top to bottom. At least he is involved in the game… Let us be Americans and unite!

    Lost all respect for Rory on this one. You’re either with Mango Mussolini or against him. If you’re with him go ahead and play golf with him, but bear the humiliation of being allies when the bombshells drop around his “presidency.” Shame on Rory!

      Allies? We are all on the same team, whether you agree with the party in power or not. No wonder this country is circling the drain.

      Brent stop the hating… Golf is a game we all play because of the love, and we all need more of it in this world.
      Respect the president as we respect this game, respect Rory for wanting to engage him. Trump is just trying to fix this broken world, Rory is just trying to fix a broken rib. That’s all there is here!

    Can we not read a freaking golf column without the politics coming out in the comments? If you don’t like Trump, cool. But there’s other places for uselessly expressing your dislike. You know like annoying all your friends on Facebook.

    President Trump’s weekend vacations to his private club in Florida have cost taxpayers almost as much in a month ($11.3 million) as President Obama’s entire travel spending for a year ($12.1 million).

    Republicans and Trump complained all the time about Obama taking vacation and playing Golf. Totla Hypocisy

    Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump
    President @BarackObama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars—-Unbelievable!

        As taxpayers, we’re paying for it. We have every right to complain about officials wasting OUR money. I thought republicans were supposed to be against the wasting of tax payer dollars…or is that only when the other side does it?

        • GolfMan

          So what you want a F18 Super Hornet parked outside your house. Go try to survive in a 3rd country when you want to complain about tax dlls being wasted. You live in a country that is by far the only place to do what you want. I lived in Nicaragua for 25 years, been in the USA for 15. Never once complained about taxes… you don’t get

    You would surely lose as his index five days ago (per GHIN Lookup) was 2.8 at Winged Foot and Trump National, Westchester.

        Feb 20, 2017 at 2:41 pm

        Yeah, everything I’ve read indicates that Trumps golf game is about as honest as his press statements.

        • 8thehardway

          Feb 20, 2017 at 7:37 pm

          Yuge beatdown in store for Chuck. He’s running the country, maintaining a 2.8 index and he owns the course; His WITB is probably classified but he has a $3,000 driver, the secret service can referee the match and his four-ball partner is Rory. Bring a friend and that billion dollars – he’s free next weekend.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.

Steph Curry did anything but embarrass himself in Web.com Tour debut

Published

on

Vegas set the over/under on Steph Curry’s opening round at the Ellie Mae Classic at 76.5.

And Curry didn’t sound like the confident man who’s perennially ready to hoist a 3-pointer from any distance in his post-practice round press conference yesterday.

But when he stepped inside the ropes as a competitor, the Golden State Warriors point guard was very much the man who does things like this

Which is really impressive, considering this post-round quote:

“As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I couldn’t feel anything. After about four holes I settled down.”

So, if you bet the over, you can’t be blamed. Curry, however, had other plans for his debut, getting around par-70 TPC Stonebrae in 74 strokes.

After starting off with a bogey (and a tee shot that landed in a golf cart cup holder), Curry played his remaining 17 holes in a respectable three over. That’s pretty damn good.

The highlight was a curling birdie putt at the par-3 sixth hole (his 15th of the day). Jordan Spieth’s fellow Under Armour sponsee celebrated with a variation on Spieth’s “go get that” Open command (per ESPN’s Michael Collins)

Curry plays to a 0.6 handicap, did excellent work at TPC Stonebrae, it has to be said. And while he was tied for 141st at the time he completed his round, his plus-4 round placed him four strokes off the cut-line pace and ahead of a handful of pros.

Enjoy a few highlights of No. 30’s 74, courtesy of the Web.com Tour. As you can see, Curry’s shots aren’t dripping with tour pro precision (yet), but the man is a solid scrambler and a gritty competitor.

Well played, Mr. Curry.
